Vegan closes in on national records
Vegan Olympic-style lifter Ramona Cadogan had her first meet of the year and did not disappoint as she continues to emphasise her class.
At the Brooklyn meet she closed the gaps on the national records as she took first in the Masters Divisions.
Snatching 55kg and then (after a fail) 57kg tied with the national record. Three good clean and jerk lifts finished with a 69kg lift, just 3kg off the US record.
“The goal at Nationals in mid April is to break all records!” says the New York-based vegan.
While competing in the Masters 50-54 category she also took third in the open age category.
Ramona has been fully vegan since 2004. “I discovered on my own through my own feelings about animal cruelty that I must go vegan” she explained.
